Cat Deeley is returning to breakfast TV in the coming weeks, with the presenter set to take over from Lorraine Kelly for the Easter break.

Cat will join the likes of Good Morning Britain's Ranvir Singh in keeping Lorraine's seat warm – and she's promised to welcome "some old friends on air" during her guest stint, too.

According to The Mirror, Cat will front episodes of Lorraine from next week. In a statement, she said: "Lorraine has kindly entrusted me with her show while she has a break over Easter.

"I'm so happy to be back at ITV for the coming week and looking forward to meeting some people I've wanted to ­interview for some time and also welcoming some old friends on air."

Lorraine's editor Victoria Kennedy was equally thrilled to have Cat – who recently reunited with Ant and Dec for a Chums special on Saturday Night Takeaway – on board.

"Next week the lovely Cat Deeley will take to the helm of Lorraine, providing viewers at home with much-needed Easter enjoyment.

"As a huge fan of SM:TV, I'm more than just a bit delighted. And of course we look forward to welcoming Ranvir back too. We've got a great line-up of Easter guests joining us."

With Cat recently making her Saturday night return on Takeaway, and Lorraine Kelly admitting that she'd love her own late-night show, perhaps a swap's on the cards?
